And so, I got this idea for a post about great songs by great bands covered by other artists. I'll post the original, then 2 different covers I like of the same song, and you can decide which is better. Or determine that I have horrible taste (which would NEVER happen).
The first song is "Creep" by Radiohead. Though I am not a die hard fan of the band (honestly, I don't get most of their music), "Creep" has always been a favorite since I first heard it on the radio in high school. It's a sexy sexy song. Here's the original:
I hope you're ready for two more versions!
There are a TON of covers for "Creep" but I chose two from two very different artists with completely opposite styles... even from Radiohead.
Next: Ingrid Michaelson. Although iTunes considers her "pop," Ingrid has a folky alternative sound not heard much on popular radio these days. I must warn you: this is going to sound VERY different.
And finally: the Matteo DiMarr remix. I heard this on SiriusXM's BPM station and loved it. I think because I am all about the melody and lyrics of the original. The entire mix is 7:26 minutes so you may need to skip through the intro and get to the actual song part around 1:50. It's a really cool mix though.
Which do you like? Do you like either of them?
